“It can be frustrating to fall in love with an uncommitted person,” she says, but she explains that the track “offers immunity from their charms.” Lighthearted yet clever, Deirisarri sings “I swear if the moon was a person, different faces, other places, it’d be you.” Despite once being so enamored, the bridge finds a stronger, more self-assured Deirisarri, able to reflect with clarity beyond the “hypnotic” pull of her past partner. “Love can be a beautiful, ephemeral, and dreamy poison,” she explains. Detailing what it’s like to fall out of love, Deirisarri sums up the track succinctly. “‘If the Moon Was a Person’ is a beautiful and delicate yet savage song that rips the undeserving off their pedestals.”
